Disorganized Storm Arrives Today

Hello everyone!

A storm system will be arriving today, but it’s not exactly impressive as far as dynamics go. The first part of the system is zooming NE through Ontario, while the second is sluggishly trying to organize over the Gulf of Mexico. The result will be a period of light to moderate snow that will cause slick roads, but insubstantial (by Maine winter standards) shoveling obligations.

Snow arrives from west to east in the early-mid afternoon hours, beginning in SW NH around 1 PM before moving into Maine around sunset. Without any powerful dynamics, I’m not expecting any extremely heavy snow, but some banding could set up in the mountains tonight. Accumulations will range from an inch along the coast where a mix with rain will occur, to as much as 10-12″ in the mountains.

High temps today will range from 5 in the north to 35 along the NH Seacoast, and overcast skies can be expected ahead of our storm system.
